Top 10 Richest Jamaican Artists Alive

ShaggyShaggy (Net Worth $22 Million)

Shaggy acquired his wealth from nine albums — three of them certified platinum and one gold. His hits include “Boombastic”  (1995) and “It Wasn’t Me’ (2001).  He was the biggest crossover success in dancehall reggae at the time. Not only did he become the genre’s most commercially potent artist in the international market, he was more than just a flash-in-the-pan, managing to sustain a career over two decades.

  1. I only saw 1 that I liked that's the problem!!!!!!!

  2. what about shabby hes got to be worth more than 3 mil

  3. I meant to say shabba …..sorry

  4. hw abt konshens?

  5. Yeaah maybe in the early – mid 90s, not anymore

  6. RaKira Godett says:

    well i don't think Shaggy or Maxi Priest were born in Jamaica so they have a cross over effect…. and the Marley's have a wide audience because of their father's popularity…. and I don't think Shaggy is even good…. Im surprised at the richest ones.

  7. RaKira Godett says:

    i doubt konshens is that rich.. his fan base is too limited (dancehall only)

  8. Buju bruk now

  9. Norman 'Mention' Francis says:

    Shaggy was born in Kingston, Maxi Priest while born in England… both had to work hard to get where they were as both were not based in Jamaica when they launched their careers 'cross over appeal' is a lame excuse to discount someone's talent…

  10. RaKira Godett says:

    I never discounted their talent. Maxi is in my top 3 favorite. Crossover makes people more successful and that's a fact. Why do you think Tessane is trying to crossover? She has been famous in the Caribbean but its not enough. A bigger audience means bigger recognition means bigger success means bigger money…

  11. Other than Shaggy ,I wish the rest of them would contribute to the poverty in their country , do something good for the young Kids who are struggling , that would be nice.

  12. wa happen to shabba

  13. Crystal Phillip says:

    Thought the marleys would hAve been top two

  14. For your information they were born in Jamaica. Do some research…. maybe you were looking Shaggy and he diss you!

  15. Do you think so? You are fooled!

  16. Jonathan Lewis Shabba is smart!

  17. All those artists worked so hard day in and day out people needs to stop badmind

  18. Claudia Shields Yap says:

    Yes I agree Shaggy, does a charity for the Bustamante Childrens Hospital and he has raised considerable funds as well as been a patron, there is of course the Marley;s ie Stephen, Damian worth in the region of approx 10 million, Sean Paul and there is of course the other Marley brother who is in the coffee business net worth 20 million, Rita Marley net worth approx 30 million Beenie Man approx net worth 8 million, Sizzla, I think is up there apart from Jamaica Rihanna est net worth 70 million Nikki Minaj estimated 40 million, I am not sure what any of them are doing but I think some are involved in donating to some form of charities.

  19. Janet Margaret Davis says:

    Good luck to all of them and proof that hard work pays off..

  20. people de a Jamaica richer than all these artiste combined and still na do Charity….so let them be n do what they want with them money especially the ones weh start from nothing..not off a legacy that was set for them to follow

  21. Word Shabba was killing the game in the 90,s he must've got a bad record deal or blew the money..

  22. Word Shabba was killing the game in the 90,s he must've got a bad record deal or blew the money..
